How long have you been coding?

Happy Friyay freeends!

My name is Pachi, and I am a Relican!
I would love to get to know you all better, so here is a question: How long have you been coding?

I started in 2018, so almost 3 years here! How about you?

My first codeβ€” at allβ€” has to be geocities when I was ~11 or 12. I think that offered a creative foundation, but it was HTML and CSS. I didn't really get into actual programming language stuff until college.

That's how I feel about my Neopets and MySpace coding days! Really excited to dig into more backend stuff.

I started learning to Code around April or June 2010. I applied for a software engineering diploma and didn't want to go to university I applied for because I don't think I'll get enough hands-on learning. I started working in December 2012 after my graduation.

So it's a little over 8 years now

I'm not super technical, but I have coded on and off my whole life. If we're counting Neopets, I've been coding for 20+ years haha. But I'm still very beginner-level! I'm currently doing #100DaysOfCode to try and ramp up my skills!

Ohhh, I started coding via Neopets, so it's been something like 16 years. Started with HTML/CSS to make my pet, shop, guild, and profile pages prettier! I didn't feel really confident in my knowledge, though, until I started teaching about seven years ago, though. At the same time, I feel like the more I learn, the more I understand how much I have yet to learn.

I'm late? I make a delphi hello world in 2006, and start using if, while, for... in end of 2007 with PHP, where I discover how run PHP code, after long time. I try make scripts for mirc (mirc script) before, but never make any useful, and don't know what is documentation for help me understand code syntax, I simple change anything and try run, until code run with different result.

I actually started coding on paper 5 years ago when I was around 14, if you can call that coding.

Yes, I would definitely call it coding! That is so interesting!

My first job in Software was in May 2012, but I wrote code before then!
